Orchard Beach double fountain WPA comfort station at the north end of Orchard Beach, in Classic Modern style with rounded corners on the front but square ones in back (like the snack bar), and with unusual window shapes. Another concrete WPA drinking fountain stands in the foreground. Photo: May 14, 2017. By the way, not far from this fountain is the only double (back-to-back) WPA fountain I've seen, shown at left; click here for a larger view.
